Indian Officials Go Missing in Pakistan After Car Accident Arrest

Two Indian officials went missing in Pakistan on Monday morning, raising fears they had been covertly arrested by Pakistani security and would be charged with espionage. When Pakistani media reported seven hours later that the two had been arrested on suspicion of a hit-and-run driving incident, the Indian government filed a strong protest, and it was quickly decided that the duo would be returned to India.
